JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2007
Dark black beer with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is chocolately and toffeeish. Heavy chewy sweetness with light rummy character, black pepper, brown sugar, toffee and chocolate. Bourbony character with lots of oakiness. Medium bodied, dark malty flavour with loads of oak. Dryish dark chocolate. Complex and quite a tasty brew.

Cask at the Brazen Head: Pours an opaque black, with a fading tan head. It’s a bit thin in body. The aroma is quite boozy, dominated by oak, with some peat-like character and bourbon. The flavor has a smooth boozyness, without being abrasive, which gives it a warming character. The finish shows the original stout profile with a late chocolatey coffee-like roastyness. Somewhat thin and simple, but still a well crafted barrel-aged stout.

Cask at Brazen Head - despite my bad experience with the BA dark, I tried this anyway, and I’m glad I did because this stuff was pretty nice - thick, opaque pour - nice combination of roasted malts, wood, and bourbon in the aroma - the sweetness of the original brew is subdued, but the roasted qualities remain, combining well with flavors the barrel add to the beer - vanilla and bourbon were present, but not overpowering - I could have drank nothing but this beer at the cask fest and been happy - quite nice.
